it's one thing to consider their feelings...it's quite another to let the child TELL the parent when they are going to do something


Quoting NNB:

Exactly. Children have no feelings, destroy any sense of a sould you may sense.

Kids are people too! Shame a lot of people just see them as little things that need to be brought into line. spanked for this, ounished for that,

I'm not against discipline, but only when it is necessary, not for simple, stupid things that kids out grow!

Quoting zianneaaliyah:

The idea of someone actually considering their child's feelings must be horrible!

There are many situations it really is better to let the child take the lead. Kids are people too.

Heh. My child was child-led in potty training. No frustration, no pushing, no bribing, no LOADS of laundry. And he wasn't even three by the time he was potty trained with minimal nocturnal accidents.

Exile Island. A fun place with colorful people.

I don't agree. *I* taught my son how to use the potty. He did not do that for hinself. I get there are some tough kids who wont train unless its on their terms, but they are not all like that.

OP, I agree for the most part, we as parents are the leader in the house, and we as parents need to push certain things. I can't stand when parents are like Ya my 3yr old doesn't talk but it'll happen when he's ready *eyeroll*

 I will give you one example where you are wrong. POTTY TRAINING. You can do everything in your power to make it happen, but if they are not ready it wont happen. Hence- Child-led potty training..

And then it's quite the other for the parent to punish the child for such behaviour instead of talking to them like a person

well why don't you explain it then?  if you don't know what it is, you don't read much about child discipline, do you?


Quoting norwgnwood:
